On the 14th and 15th of September 2010 the 3rd Backgrounds Steering Committee Meeting will take place in Portorož. The European project, part of the Program Med, started in year 2009, will be completed in the first part of the year 2012 and is co-financed by the European regional development found.
Under the guidance of the Region of Sicily, the partners (Luke Koper, Port Authority Marseille Fos, Region Liguria and the Spanish institute FEPORTS) are working to increase the integration of Med ports with their own territories and relevant productive clusters. Backgrounds aims at providing efficient tools to face functional, operational and organisational problems related to the traffic of goods and passengers in port regions. These instruments should reduce road congestions through the implementation of a common communication protocol. During the meeting discussions will focus also to the implementation of GIS tools.
